mine runs $50 for some pretty good stuff, the best paint i have ever shot was $70 a case and it was worth every penny
ya if you look at the quality of the paint you are buying, chances are the stuff from the box store is not worth what you are paying for it, that $17 bag of entry level paint is costing you almost $70 a case
save your money up and buy a case at a time from the shop, you will have better paint and be saving money over time
I personally agree with that FOR THE MOST PART. If the bags are sealed, then sealed in the box, and stored in decent temperatures and humidity, there is no big deal if it sets for a long time. I have used quality paint that I kept properly stored for 6-8 months and it shot beautifully. If however it's not sealed anymore, or it's stored in extreme cold or heat, then you start having a problem. the biggest thing is once it's opened, it really does start going downhill. Don't know the science behind it since it's not made in a vaccuum, it's been exposed to the air the entire time it's being made, but that's what I've found.I've heard a couple reps state that the whole "fresh" thing is junk, as most paint sits in warehouses for weeks before it makes it out to the players.
Manufacturer's warehouses or store warehouses?I've heard a couple reps state that the whole "fresh" thing is junk, as most paint sits in warehouses for weeks before it makes it out to the players.
